The NAB's Dennis Wharton said, "NAB strongly opposes efforts to overturn the FCC's exceedingly modest reforms made to media ownership rules. We are hopeful that policymakers ultimately come to fully appreciate the seismic changes in the media landscape over the last three decades, and stand down on this unnecessary proposal."

This would seem to be an acknowledgment of a competitive environment in the media sector.
